B2B software sales and marketing teams love hearing the term "artificial intelligence" (AI). AI has a smoke and mirrors effect. But, when we say "AI is doing this," our buyers often know so little about AI that they don't ask the hard questions. In industries like the DevTools space, it is crucial that buyers understand both what products do and what their limitations are to ensure that these products meet their needs. If the purpose of AI is to make good decisions for humans, to accept that "AI is doing this" is to accept that we don't really know how the product works or if it is making good decisions for us.

Turns out converting files into images is a highly effective way to detect malware

#artificialintelligence

A branch of artificial intelligence called machine learning is all around us. It's employed by Facebook to help curate content (and target us with ads), Google uses it to filter millions of spam messages each day, and it's part of what enabled the OpenAI bot to beat the reigning Dota 2 champions last year in two out of three matches. There are seemingly endless uses. Adding one more to the pile, Microsoft and Intel have come up with a clever machine learning framework that is surprisingly accurate at detecting malware through a grayscale image conversion process. Microsoft detailed the technology in a blog post (via ZDNet), which it calls static malware-as-image network analysis, or STAMINA.


Checklist for Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging (CLAIM): A Guide for Authors and Reviewers

#artificialintelligence

Item 2. The abstract should present a structured summary of the study's design, methods, results, and conclusions; it should be understandable without reading the entire manuscript. Provide an overview of the study population (number of patients or examinations, number of images, age and sex distribution). Indicate if the study is prospective or retrospective, and summarize the statistical analysis that was performed. When presenting the results, be sure to include P values for any comparisons. Indicate whether the software, data, and/or resulting model are available publicly.


'Like a science experiment': A New York family learns the limits of coronavirus tests

Reuters: U.S. News

NEW YORK (Reuters) - After a week or so sick in bed in their New York City apartment in March, members of the Johnson-Baruch family were convinced they had been stricken by the novel coronavirus. Subsequent test results left them with more questions than answers. Tests both for the virus itself and for the antibodies the immune system produces to fight the infection are becoming more widely available, but they are not perfect. For Maree Johnson-Baruch, her husband, Jason Baruch, and their two teenage daughters, their experience ran the gamut. They all became sick around the same time with the same symptoms.


HOW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE USED IN EDUCATION?

#artificialintelligence

Governments and institutions are facing the new demands of a rapidly changing society. Among many significant trends, some facts should be considered (Silverstein, 2006): (1) the increment of number and type of students; and (2) the limitations imposed by educational costs and course schedules. About the former, the need of a continuous update of knowledge and competences in an evolving work environment requires life-long learning solutions. An increasing number of young adults are returning to classrooms in order to finish their graduate degrees or attend postgraduate programs to achieve an specialization on a certain domain. About the later, due to the emergence of new types of students, budget constraints and schedule conflicts appear.


Which Face is Real? Applying StyleGAN to Create Fake People - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

A Generative model aims to learn and understand a dataset's true distribution and create new data from it using unsupervised learning. These models (such as StyleGAN) have had mixed success as it is quite difficult to understand the complexities of certain probability distributions. In order to sidestep these roadblocks, The Adversarial Nets Framework was created whereby the generative model is pitted against an adversary: a discriminative model that learns to determine whether a sample is from the model distribution or the data distribution. The generative model generates samples by passing random noise through a multilayer perceptron, and the discriminative model is also a multilayer perceptron. We refer to this case as Adversarial Nets.


Data synthesis methods: why fake data is sometimes best

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence: it's the "magic" that can solve every business problem imaginable. Often, even where AI systems could provide revolutionary solutions, there are practical limitations. If your AI is going to learn from data, how do you make sure it has the right amount of data and that it's data you can use without heading straight for a legal minefield? This is where data synthesis comes in. One reason companies are increasingly turning to data synthesis methods to build AI systems is primarily because synthetic data is easier to create.


Facebook's AI system can speak with Bill Gates's voice

#artificialintelligence

The slow progress on realistic text-to-speech systems is not from lack of trying. Numerous teams have attempted to train deep-learning algorithms to reproduce real speech patterns using large databases of audio. The problem with this approach, say Vasquez and Lewis, is with the type of data. Until now, most work has focused on audio waveform recordings. These show how the amplitude of sound changes over time, with each second of recorded audio consisting of tens of thousands of time steps.


Artificial Intelligence Will Change the Banking Sector says Deltec Bank, Bahamas

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning uses algorithms to determine if specific activities from consumers seem out of character when compared to previous spending habits. Some individuals see the advancement of artificial intelligence as an indispensable technology that the banking sector can utilize to generate new revenue streams. Others look at AI as an existential menace to the very existence of jobs. When up to 1.2 million employment opportunities could get lost due to the automation and self-regulation capabilities that AI software provides, then it is a topic that must be taken earnestly. Artificial intelligence might seem like another marketing buzzword today, much like the notion of Big Data was back in the early 2010s.
